No, I’m not crazy. There are beaches in Ohio. Not ocean beaches, but still beaches.
At the northern side of Ohio lies one of the Great Lakes – Lake Erie, and there are several locations that have turned into cute little beach towns and a perfect destination for a weekend getaway. My family and I traveled up to one of these beaches on a random Wednesday to join in on the fun. It was a beautiful day to explore a new place: sunny and 75 degrees.
As we embarked on our adventure, I came to realize just how under appreciated Ohio is by the general public (myself included). Most of my friends in high school went through their childhoods with big plans to leave the state ASAP because there was “nothing to do.” I am now discovering that the only reason that statement can be true is if you fail to make an effort finding things to do.
My dad has always told me “wherever you go, there you are” and I haven’t really thought about the meaning of the phrase until just recently. If you think about it, it is quite a powerful motto to live by. To me, it radiates a sort of “seize the day” vibe. Instead of seizing the day, it says to take every opportunity to explore and take full advantage of where you are, no matter how drab it may seem. There is always a way to add a pop of color and make life exciting!
I hope that this page will spark a new desire for travel and an urge to find cool, little-known places in your area! xo Bridget
